Being Organized Reduces Stress:
People who describe their homes as cluttered or full of unfinished projects tend to be more depressed, fatigued, and have higher stress levels than people who felt their homes were restful and organized.
When you come home to clutter or a list of To Dos, it may prevent the natural decline in cortisol (the stress hormone) that occurs over the course of the day, researchers say. This can and will take a toll on your mood, sleep, health, and more. Taking the time to tackle those piles of laundry, sort through stacks of papers, and organize your space won’t just clear away the physical stuff, it’ll actually help you feel happier and more relaxed.
Being Organized Makes You More Productive:
Clutter is distracting, and research confirms that it can actually affect your ability to focus. Looking at too many things at once gives you sensory overload. De-cluttering your desk will payoff at work, but the benefits won’t stop there. When you’re organized at work, you’re more productive and efficient, which means you’re able to finish on time and go home. This leaves you with more time for your needs like to exercise, prepare a meal, relax, and get more sleep. Clutter in the home works the same way. You can either spend your days going through clutter regularly or get organized, stay organized and enjoy your space! You’ll find you have time to do other projects or get out and do things without feeling stressed.
Being Organized Improves Your Health:
You’re probably wondering how organization has anything to do with your health. Being an organized person helps you stay accountable for many things in your life. People who set short-term goals, have a plan, and are more likely to stick with an exercise program than those who show up to the gym and wing it. Using organizing skills to be more organized about exercise makes you more aware of your progress, which motivates you to stay accountable even when you don’t feel like it. This will also help you be more mindful about what you put into your body. When you are holding yourself more accountable about exercise the food will follow because you don’t want to ruin that good workout. Another way being organized helps improve your health is you will find that you sleep better. When things are in place as they should be in your life then your mind will also be calm. Between a good exercise regimen and eating a balanced diet your sleep will be on point. All of these things improve your overall health and quality of life!
Being Organized Makes You Love Your Home/Work Space:
This truly is a no brain-er. When you stay organized you can regularly find whatever you are looking for. Your space is clean and highly functional. Who doesn’t love a clean organized environment? It makes you love being in that space because it brings a sense of calmness and relaxation into your mind.
Being Organized Boosts Your Self-Esteem:
Being organized makes you feel more accomplished. This is one of the best ways to boost self-esteem. Go to your dresser and open it. Is it a complete disaster? If so, pull out all those clothes and dump them on the floor. Get rid of the things you no longer wear, and fold the clothes you want to keep. Stack them according to color and season. I love keeping my closet color coded and shirt/pant type. This way, when you wake up in the morning you’ll know exactly where everything is and what you want to wear. You will be amazed at how much better your clothes feel and look on you. I also love to have my bathroom organized with containers under my cabinets. I can always locate what I need when I need it and it makes me feel so good inside!
Being Organized Save You Time And Money:
Organization keeps you from buying items you already have, but you’ve forgotten about or lost in your household or workplace. Did you know lost item replacement is roughly an 80 million dollar business? Being organized can save you so much money and time it takes to replace the items.
